Abstract

The field of Diversity and Inclusion is a growing interest within the High-Tech industry, particularly within the San Francisco Bay Area of California. To combat misconceptions of Diversity and Inclusion, this thesis aims to define and analyze the language used at 20 companies in the High-Tech sector. The trends, nuances, and practices of how companies use language in their programming and data dictates the

Findings from this research suggest that companies can strengthen their Diversity and Inclusion commitments by focusing more on transparency of data and providing further insight into
how they prioritize their initiatives.
